Chester’s Dill verbals to Temple; Springfield’s Archibong offered

A source confirmed Wednesday night that Chester star lineman D’Andre Dill has verbally committed to Temple University.

In addition, Temple has offered a scholarship to Springfield defensive end Dan Archibong.

Chester’s D’Andre Dill is slated to be a Temple Owl beginning in 2016.

Dill is a mountainous, 6-3, 240-pound rising senior. He thrived both ways for the Clippers the last two years. He’s considered one of the top players at his position in Delco for the 2015 season. Last fall, he earned All-Delco second-team honors as he helped the Clippers to a much-improved season.

The Inquirer also reported on Dill’s commitment via Twitter.

Check out Dill’s highlight reel below.

One of the Catholic League’s most accomplished quarterbacks has made his college decision.

Bonner-Prendergast’s Collin DiGalbo will continue his career at Kutztown University.

DiGalbo will graduate in the spring as Monsignor Bonner’s/Bonner-Prendergast’s all-time leading passer. His 4,174 career yardage ranks eighth in Delaware County history.

DiGalbo will join 2014 Daily Times Player of the Year and Springfield linebacker Adam Krauter at Kutztown.

Springfield LB Krauter to play at Kutztown

Springfield LB Adam Krauter, the 2014 Daily Times Player of the Year, will continue his career at Kutztown University.

A two-time All-Delco, Krauter was a monster in the middle for the Cougars, who captured a Central League title for the first time in 20 years and came a win away from a District One Class AAA championship.

Krauter was the heart and soul of a defense regarded as one of the best in program history, and certainly tops in the Central League and Delco.

Krauter made sure 2014 would be an unforgettable year. In 10 regular-season games, the Cougars allowed a measly eight points per game. Krauter and the Cougars defeated Interboro and Pottsgrove in the District One Class AAA playoffs to set up a clash with Great Valley. Although Krauter and the defense limited the Patriots to one touchdown and 227 yards of offense, the Cougars fell, 21-0. Krauter (6-1, 230), who excelled in pass coverage and at tracking down running backs, finished a stellar senior season with 123 tackles.

Bonner-Prendergast OL/DL DiGalbo commits to CUPA

All-Delco center Christian DiGalbo announced on Twitter he would continue his playing career at California University of Pa.

DiGalbo was a two-way machine for the Friars and a big reason for the team’s success in 2014. With DiGalbo in the trenches Bonner enjoyed its best single-season record since 2001.

Upper Darby’s Rucci commits to Bloomsburg

Upper Darby OL/DL Scott Rucci will continue his career at Bloomsburg University.

Rucci joins the PSAC after two years as one of the top linemen in the county. He earned All-Central League honors his senior season.

Rucci participated in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl in January.

Garnet Valley QB Flanagan picks Millersville

Garnet Valley’s Stephen Flanagan is taking his talents to the PSAC.

Earlier this month, the 6-1, 210-pound quarterback committed to Millersville.

Flanagan guided the Jaguars to a second-place finish in the Central League and a trip to the District One Class AAAA tournament, losing to eventual champions Pennsbury.

This past season, Flanagan passed for 1,103 yards and 10 touchdowns while rushing for 794 yards and 12 scores.
